People have been asking for it and Taylor Swift has finally taken action when it comes to the alt-right and their idolization of her. The singer isn’t denouncing the white supremacists and is instead attempting to silence a PopFront writer, which has landed the singer on the ACLU’s bad side.

Halsey is one of several big names that have been announced for a new benefit show. Organized by Zedd, the show will benefit the American Civil Liberties Union, which has been working overtime to challenge President Donald Trump’s executive orders like the Muslim Ban. Zedd has put together a lineup that also features Tinashe, Daya, Skrillex and more.
Unfortunately, he couldn’t get some of the stars he originally tried to recruit. While Macklemore is on board, Zedd couldn’t get Camila Cabello, who has written about her own experience as a member of an immigrant family, for the show despite reaching out publicly.
The concert is called “Welcome!” and tagged as “Phase 1,” hinting that there could be more phases coming soon. The first one will happen on April 3 at the Staples Center in L.A.
See the official poster for the show below.

Many celebrities are talking the talk in response to President Donald Trump’s latest executive order, but Zedd wants to start encouraging his peers to walk the walk. The Russian-born German DJ is determined to use his platform to protest Trump’s travel restriction placed on several Muslim-majority nations with a special benefit concert. Zedd began reaching out to fellow musicians in hopes of throwing together a show to raise money for the ACLU—American Civil Liberties Union—and Camila Cabello is on his wish list. Sia, Grimes and Macklemore were also asked to participate.
